RF Micro Needling


RF Micro-needling involves the same technique technique as micro-needling in regards to making micro channels in the skin, but enhances results by going through these micro channels in the skin to deliver heat energy. The heat energy propelled deep below the epidermis stimulates each layer of the skin to intensify the production of proteins and enzymes and better treat targeted skin imperfections. Gold-insulated needles deliver heat solely through the tip, ensuring your treatment is precise and effective.

Who is it for?

Micro-needling with RF is a minimally invasive treatment that reduces wrinkles, scars, acne scars, sagging skin, and stretch marks for all skin types. The addition of radio frequency energy stimulates collagen production and enhances healing, revealing firmer, rejuvenated skin. The procedure uses fine, sterilised needles to create microscopic wounds at varying dermal depths, avoiding the epidermis. This thermal energy promotes new collagen production and dermal thickening. The intact epidermis and surrounding tissue ensure rapid healing with minimal downtime and risks.

What can I expect?

There is very little down time to this treatment. You may experience mild redness, swelling and an itchy sensation but this should all go down within 24 hours of the treatment. Pin point scabs can also appear post treatment this is normal. Since we use numbing cream for the procedure it is generally painless. 

How many treatments will I need and when will I see results?

Usually, a RF Micro-needling procedure can show results as soon as a few days, but further results develop as your body begins to produce collagen.

The tightening effect and final results are going to appear gradually over six months. Collagen rebuilding requires time to fully rebuild itself.

To maximize on achieving a full face collagen restoration and rebuilding effect we suggest a customised treatment plan which includes 3-5 RF Microneedling sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Is there aftercare?

  • A certain degree of discomfort, redness, and/or irritation during and after treatment is expected. If any discomfort or irritation persists more than 24 hours, please notify the treatment facility.

  • Tiny scabs (of less than 1 mm in diameter) may form 24-72 hours post treatment and may remain for several days. The scabs should not be touched or scratched (even if they itch) and should be allowed to shed naturally.

  • During the first two days following treatment, care should be taken to prevent trauma to the treated site: avoid hot baths, massage, irritating skin care products or exfoliants, etc. The skin should be kept clean to avoid contamination or infection; any mechanical or thermal damage to the area must be avoided.

  • For burning sensation, spritz the treatment area with a diluted vinegar solution (1tsp white vinegar per 8 ounces water)

  • It is important to keep your skin moisturized after the treatment.

  • You may have mild swelling for 1-3 days after your treatment. Patients may apply an icepack (NOT direct ice) to the irritated area for 1-2 days in approximately 15 minute sessions 3-4 times per day. Redness for 1-3 days is common. After 12 hours post-procedure, the patient may apply a hydrocortisone cream 3-4 times per day to reduce redness.

  • Makeup can be applied 12 hours after treatment

  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure or use of tanning bed for at least two weeks after the treatment, as the skin that was treated will be more sensitive to the sun after your Sublative treatment.

  • Use minimum of SPF 30 daily to protect your skin after your treatment.​
